In his first novel in over twenty years, Anthony Burgess brings us a deeply human story of passion and obsession, the power of music to connect us to the past and the future.

In the aftermath of World War II, a group of musicians gather around a piano in a bleak London flat, playing and replaying the same pieces of music, trying to find a way to make sense of their lives. As the days turn into weeks, and the weeks into months, the players discover that the music is not just a refuge from the reality of their daily lives, but a means of connecting with one another and with a past they never knew.

The Pianoplayers is a beautiful and moving story about the power of music to connect us to the past and the future.; 8vo; $10.00.
